Lyft went public at the end of the March 2019, at the starting position set at a price of 73$ still trading around the initial price, trending up and proving the point that investors find ridesharing companies more than interesting.
As Uber is also getting ready for their own IPO debut, another similar company have already hit the markets back in June 2018.
